Cuisinart's processor beats the competitors, hands down, for speed and efficiency. This work horse can do it all and handles dough or hard parmesan cheese like a champ. I would recommend this processor to everyone. It lasts for years and has a slicing disc available for every option.

Best way to cook, hands down!

I have been using induction cooking for over a year now and can't say enough about how fantastic it is. Perfect boil in less than 2 minutes and perfect simmer for hours if needed. The control is remarkable and beats gas easily. I have two portable induction tops, one for our travel trailer which makes cooking a breeze. Remember, you can only use a stainless steel or enamel pot on these. To test, see if a magnet will attach to the bottom of your pan.

This is another fantastic All-Clad product. A slow braise in the oven requires this dutch oven and this pan, either size is just what you need. Every cook should have at least 1 dutch oven, and it's great when you want to serve a crowd a huge batch of fresh chowder or soup.

If you use your food processor at all, you will want to add additional blades and this is a great set. The standard slicing blade is too thick for cole slaw so this smaller size is perfect and I make steak frites with the french fry blade at least every few weeks. Excellent product.

This is essential for blade storage but does have a poor lock design. Since I don't have small children it wasn't a problem for me and it wouldn't stop me from recommending it. Storage for food processor blades is always a big problem as they are razor sharp so I would still recommend this to everyone who has the need. Frankly, it probably isn't sitting out anyway on most counters so safety from small children isn't a huge issue.

I have owned both major food processor brands and without a doubt, Cuisinart is still King. It just works better, faster and smoother than its major competitor. I have owned 3 different sizes and now use the 11 cup. This is a product that I used almost daily and no kitchen should be without one.

This is a wonderful product, working exactly as advertised. It is very heavy to lift though, so you can't be frail. Does smoothies with frozen fruit automatically and with minimum effort. Great product.

This is a very easy, straight forward book, like this Chef's style. The recipes are a bit too easy at times but this is the perfect book for a beginner with a passion for good, easy to prepare food. I would give this as a gift for someone who is just getting started.
